Thought I'd dig this up.

I didn't make a big deal out of it (I hope) but I went speed dating last week.
There were no men that I clicked with, but I did come away with the mobile number of the lady who was sat next to me - thanks to there being almost double the amount of women to men we were able to chat for a while.

We agreed to go out next week, but today in a Sunday magazine I read an article on a club night called Big Girls' Paradise which is held in London once a month. It's next weekend.

I am going to try to persuade her to come to this with me. She is larger than me, so I hope she won't be offended, but it seems ideal. I love to dance - I mean really love to dance - and haven't been to a place that plays mainstream music where I can really let go in ages. I know she is looking for love, but I am really just up for a good time - no euphemism intended. For her, there might be men there who are interested. For me there should be good music, dancing and not feeling out of place.

I have ordered a corset from eBay. Here's hoping it looks good and she agrees. I might go alone otherwise.

I'm back to trying to meet people, can you tell?

Yay SG! Hope you have a fab time! I expect the Cellar guys'll want a picture of you in the corset, eh ?!

just open the dictionary to a random page, and pick a word.

I have always wanted to get a corset. I found this great website that looks like it has great ones, but a little expensive. www.absolutecorsets.com I want the over the bust kind so that I can wear it like clothes

And thanks for the link Classic - that's a great idea!
I wish I could search by postcode though.

Oh, just remembered I have my own laptop now!
I can go through all the meetings at my leisure tonight...

No - we don't get an option for that
London is London acording to Meetup
Still, I've already joined one group and have my eye on another

In other, sadder news - it's highly unlikely I will get my corset in time now
The Magic 8 Ball was right apparently
Am frantically going through what I could possibly wear instead
Nothing that fills me with such glee I'm afraid

if you can't afford that, you can always get one of these: corset necklaces

disclaimer: that's beautiful Daughter No. 1's website.

Lovely work there Cloud!

Okay, not only do I have my corset
But I decided to check out Craig's List as well

I know, I know - but it's a way of meeting people
Have already contacted someone who will be in London in a few weeks
Just a dinner and chat thing

I think that if you want to meet new people and there's a way to do it easily then it doesn't matter what avenue you use.

If you're looking on craigslist then chances are there's other people just as nice as you there too. Don't you think?

As nice as me...?
I'm hoping there's a better class of people than that

But yes - I want to believe that there are honest men who just want dinner and a chat because they're in a strange city. It's not a relationship thing, just a companion thing. And I don't think I'm into random sex any more, even if my libido is waking up. So I can just say no and walk away if that's what they're about.

It's not really caught on in the UK yet - so the people posting are mostly Americans here on business. Suits me - I have years experience of translating now!
